Wandering in the Market  Chichicastenango  Guatemala

Wandering in the Market

Chichi is a vibrant and colorful Mayan town in the mountains. The famous Chichi market is one of the biggest markets in Guatemala.

Sunday and Thursday are the market days, and I first visited on Sunday, which was very busy and brimming with tourists. Since I was in the city all week I got to see quieter non-market days in Chichi, which I loved. I also got to see the set-up for the Thursday market on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning—that was a lot of fun to watch.
